  5. Consider that the true purpose of prayer is to increase Hashem’s influence in the world. When people see Jews building synagogues and praying they are more aware that Hashem is the Master of the Universe.

  6. Know that Hashem has the power to provide for whole universe.

  7. Pray for big things. Hashem is unlimited.

  8. Use prayer as a springboard to get closer to Hashem.
